The Boulder Public Library and the Boulder Valley School District have partnered to give students age-appropriate access to the library’s research databases.
The Student 1 Initiative, which launched this week, provides access to about 12,500 students in Boulder’s city limits The initiative started as a pilot program with Fairview High School students.
Through the initiative, students can find scholarly, factual, timely and peer-reviewed content from credible sources, including research databases. The databases are discipline-specific and include subject guides to help students quickly locate relevant information.
Students can access this new feature by visiting the library’s website and going to the Youth Services page under the Kids and Teens section, then selecting BVSD Student 1 Homework Help. Students will still need to come to the library and sign up for a library card to check out books and other materials.
Parents who wish to opt out of this program may do so by filling out a form on the library’s website. For more information or to opt your child out, visit research.boulderlibrary.org/student-1 or call the library at 303-441-3100.
